Women enjoy porn too; men act in porn too

"Sir: I considered waiting for a woman to reply to Thomas Swann's letter ("Violent pornography devalues the rights and desires of women", 11 September), but since he chose to speak for all women I don't feel it inappropriate to speak for just a few.

More than one of my female friends have admitted an appreciation for erotica of a sadistic or masochistic bent, and those preferences (which I respect) involve in varying degrees the sexual objectification of both men and women. It is hard to know for sure, but it seems that men are the recipients of this violence in roughly equal proportion to women. In comparison to mainstream newspapers and magazines this seems particularly egalitarian.

To assume that this "violent porn" is the cause, not a symptom, of the impulses that led to Jane Longhurst's death is a leap of the imagination comparable to computer games causing crime, or horror films causing murders. Men and women will always see objects of desire in each other, but to think that a sex object is all that they see is to ignore the influence of family, of friends, of society, and of humanity itself."
